...she looks good, considering she was on a whack of meds for her diagnosed bi-polar condition and probably still is, aitkins looks like he has a portrait ageing in the attic somewhere, especially when you compare him with contemporaries like leif garret, etal, shudder....

LOVE Kristy!!!!!!!!She is still so pretty! From the first time I saw her on the show Family(Buddy Lawrence!!!How cute was she?!?!) ..she was awesome in Little Darlings...just a great actress! great smile..and OMG could turn on the water works for a scene! She did so much awesome work! I dont blame her for leaving work in front of the camera..with vultures and paps like tmz following people you cant have a normal life. Selfishly, I would love to see her in some type of show now though!

When I was a kid she was one of my very favorite stars...saw all her films, She`s looking good and I hope she`s happy. I wonder why she gave it up so young...she was huge, then just disappeared.

Always loved Kristy McNichol and always will. She was a great actor, genuine human being and always so polite to fans. I know that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and decided to quit acting. I hope she makes a return. She is always funny to watch. Loved her in Little Darlings, Empty Nest, etc.
PS: Looking fab for 46 yrs old!
